Make Me Do It – 2012 in Review

What a fantastic year 2012 was for Make Me Do It! Record breaking group fitness participation, 6 successful new programs, $1500 in fundraising and some wonderful new friendships are among the highlights of 2012. Make Me Do It ended the year content with all we’ve achieved but full of excitement for what lays ahead in 2013!

I would be effectively lying if I didn’t mention some of the challenges we faced..2 scrapped websites, a long cold winter, some botched advertising and dodgy equipment all played a significant role. Everything to this point has been a huge learning curve and I relish the opportunity to improve our performance every day.

Most importantly, we’ve seen outstanding results among our clients who are continually reporting success in fitness, weightloss, reduced stress relief and general happiness. Among our goals for 2013 are to celebrate some of these fantastic stories with you.

On a personal note, 2012 has been a wonderful year! In June I married the girl of my dreams and we started making plans for our future together, recently purchasing a property in Mooroolbark. Karens daily support and work behind the scenes has played a huge role in the development of Make Me Do It.

I’d like to say a personal thanks to all our clients, whether you have attended a free trial, the occasional personal training session or you are a regular participant at our Croydon and Lilydale classes. Without you, Make Me Do It simply would not be.

Can’t wait to embark on 2013!!

Paul’s Top 5 Tips to a Healthier Christmas

Christmas is a great time to celebrate and let your hair down, but it shouldn’t mean you roll into the new year 5kg heavier and feeling like you swallowed a block of concrete!!
Here’s my top 5 tips for maintaining your weight during the festive season.
1. Exercise 
A 30 min walk, twice per day is a great way to offset those extras calories. Take the dog first thing in the morning before all the unwrapping begins. After lunch, walk the kids to the local playground and push them on the swings. Its daylight savings and light until 9pm!!!…take a stroll after dinner and have some time to yourself.
2. Don’t over indulge!!
With the huge variety of food on offer its easy to pile up your plate! And lets be honest, who doesn’t feel the need to go back for seconds?  Try taking smaller samples of your favourite foods..and eat slowly.
3. Limit Alcohol
Be merry, but not too merry! There’s no easy way to say this…alcohol in large quantities makes you fat.
4. Limit snacks
Write down the treats that you will allow yourself each day, and stick to them. By all means, enjoy some Christmas Pudding but avoid sitting next to the cheese tray. Some of the real no-no’s listed here..pastries, savoury snacks and fried meat served on a tooth-pick.
5. Drink plenty of water
At the very least, try to match every glass of fizz or alcohol with a glass of water. A great way of releasing toxins and water will make you feel fuller btw meals.
Have a safe and Merry Christmas!
